There were however plenty of tears at Jennifer's funeral.
Hundreds attended the service Saturday afternoon here at the Martinsville Church of God.
One of the three area ministers who conducted the service encouraged mourners not to focus on the evil that took her life but rather on all the good Jennifer brought to this world.
This is, after all, a nine year old girl who brought together an entire community.

Shiite Muslim leaders in Lebanon and Iran are expressing outrage over remarks by the Reverend Jerry Falwell. Last week, on the program 60- Minutes, Falwell called Islam's prophet a terrorist. An Iranian paper quotes a high- ranking religious leader as saying Falwell is a quote "mercenary and must be killed."

The reported statements came during Friday prayers, and the Muslim leader went on to say that Falwell's death "is a religious duty,'' but that his case should not be tied to the Christian community.
